Hey, didn't BB King call his ax "Lucille"? :)

""I'm very crazy about Lucille," he (BB) begins. It's a general reference 
course, for after all, many guitars have been part of King's life. "I've 
many guitars ... and I always call them Lucille. She's taken me a long 
even brought me some fame ... most of all, she's kept me alive, being able 
to eat ... Lucille practically saved my life two or three times," he says, 
referring to one of his several auto accidents, "The car stopped turning 
over, it fell over on Lucille and it held it up off of me."
